This is the official web page for The Swamp hosted on It was created and is currently maintained with hammer and chisel into solid rock. All of my web pages are created that way. It isn't that I approve of that method, it is simply the only method I know. I use Linux and vim and postgresql and php. If I have to, or am having a particularly nice day, I use perl. I have been known to use c, and c++, but not generally for web pages.

I could not do any of this without the constant, though usually unwitting, support of the wonderful people who are much more knowledgable than I am and who post questions and answers to difficult technical issues on the Internet.

Your email client will very likely do everything auto-magically, especially if you use the address to write me. Just for reference, the fingerprint posted here should match the fingerprint from the public key you get from the keyserver.
